I have been a devoted fan of J G Farrell since reading "Troubles" when it was first published. I have read all his books since then, and introduced other people to them. I read "The Singapore Grip" shortly before visiting Singapore myself, and had fun quizzing older people about places mentioined in the book. I was deeply distressed when I heard of his death, and though I could not afford to buy hard-backs at the time, my tribute to him was to buy the unfinished novel "The Hill Station" as soon as it came out. No other author has ever had this powerful effect on me, and I mean to re-read them all one day.
